THE VOICE OP FREEDOM.
tSS For the Voice of Freedom. THE BIBLE CAUSE, In my last communication the importance of as' tablishing good depositories was brought to view. In this I wish to say a word or two respecting the manner of establishing them. In most of the counties in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont, there are County Societies already organized. These societies mip-ht pstnhlish depositories, one or more for each county, which should be suffi ciently furnished for the wants of the county. From these county depositories, those established in towns and villages might be supplied. In ma ny towns, Young Men's, or Young Ladies' Bible Societies might be organized, by means of which, depositories might be established, and the destitute supplied. But in many towns it may not be deem ed expedient to form societies ; in such cases in dividuals might be selected to act as agents, keep depositories, and receive donations and contribu tions for the Bible Cause. By adopting these dif ferent measures the object of establishing deposi tories might be accomplished, the community provided with the best means of obtaining the Scriptnres, and the Bible cause greatly promoted. In order to do this, it will be necessary for the of ficers of County Societies to be prompt in perform ing the duties of their office ; and to select indi viduals to act as agents who feel an interest in the cause, and who will not forget their appointment in the course of a few weeks, or months. And may not persons be found in every town who will bo ready to engage in this cause and who will cheerfully assist in the accomplishment of an ob ject so desirable ? It is presumed there may be and it is desirable that measures should be adop ted for the purpose of enlisting them in the good cause. Let the subject be brought before the sev eral County Bible Societies at their next miniver sary, and men appointed to take the charge of de positories, and receive donations in all our towns ; and then let these depositories be well supplied, and the subject presented, in a suitable manner, to the several religious societies and congregations, in the course of every year, and opportunities giv en to all disposed to contribute to the cause ; and methinks there would be no want of means to ac complish the object desired, or to put in operation the several plans proposed. J. LANE, Agt. of Am Bible Society, Gilmanton, N. II., April 29, 1839. From the Vermont Chronicle. To Mr. E. C. Tracy Sir : We have observ ed in your paper of the 10th inst. a denial of the fact that Messrs. H. F. Leavitt and J. Blanchard appeared before the ministerial Convention of September last, at Vergennes, as Agents of the Vermont Anti-Slavery Society, or of any commit tee of the same. Now the facts in the case, so far as we know, are these : On the 4th of September last, at a regular meeting of the Executive Committee of the Vermont Anti-Slavery Society, the Rev. H. F. Leavitt, of Vergennes, and the Rev. J. Blanchard, of Cincinnati, Ohio, were elected Agents to pre sent the claims which the cause ol Abolition has upon the Christian public, to the General Conven tion of Congregational and Presbyterian Ministers which was then soon to be holden at Vergennes. inese genuemen were supplied witn written cre dentials to substantiate their agency ; and as such, we have ever understood, the Rev. Mr. Blanchard appeared before the Convention on the subject of ins agency ; and as such, we supposed it was understood by most if not all of the Convention at the time. We had been led to this conclusion from the report which Mr. B. subsequently made to the committee's Secretary; and from the fact which we are able to substantiate by proof, that when Mr. B. arose to address the Con vention, Rev. Mr. Converse, of Burlington, one of the Scribes, inquired of him if he had his credentials of his agen cy and that he was prevented presenting them from the fact, only, that it was wholly unnecessary. This was the avowed sentiment expressed by many if not all the members of the Convention. Bv this measure the Convention did virtually acknowl dge Mr. B. an Agent of some Anti-Slavery body ; and whether that body be the Vermont or the American Anti-Slavery Society, was perfectly immaterial. There is a oneness of object, and sameness of sentiment and action, extending ithrough the whole benevolent Anti-Slavery move ment. As our Agent, and as an advocate for the cause of emancipation, Rev. J. Blanchard did appear be fore the Convention, and was allowed ten minutes in the year 1838, to address a Convention of Con gregational Ministers and others in Vermont, on the claims which three millions of Americans, who are held in the most abject bondage in one part of our country, have upon the professed disciples of Tf II til.. I l mm wno aas aeciarea "inasmucn as ye nave aone it unto one of the least of these, my brethren, ye have done it unto me." What an act of conde scension ! What a favor ! What influence the Agent had on the action of ,that body, is not ours to determine. It is sufficient for us to find that an action was had. Of the correctness of that action, the Convention, not us, .are responsible, in the annals of time and in the light of eternity, it will be clearly seen and under .stood. Cordially yours, J. A. Allen, Sec. of Ex. Com. of Vt. A. S. Society. Middlcbury, April 19th, 1838. From the Union (Caienovia, N. Y.) Herald. A Letter from Rev. John Truair; AjyuLjA, April 17, 1S39. Dear Brother MyricktThe author of the fol lowing narrative is now livjng in the west part of the town of lully, in this slate j and is a respec table mechanic, a man, as J am told, of unques tionable veracity. I had an interview with him the latter part of winter, in which he related to me the facts herein stated ; and, at my request, has furnished them for the perusal of those who are seeking truth in regard to the treatment of slaves. If 'you think it will in any way serve the cause of the oppressed and degraded slaves in oqr highly polluted and guilty land, you can give it to the nublic : and the friends of liberty can make what use of it they please. I entertain no doubt of the truth of this narrative, for the facts which it con tains, and many others of asimilar character, were related to me in all the simplicity of honest and conscious truth, John TRUAin. - NARRATIVE OF J. C. HODGE. In the year A, D, 1836, I left Tullv for the South, in company and in the employ of a plant er from Alabama. We went from this directly to me state oi uelaware, where 1 betrun to see the operation of buying and sellinir slaves, and the separation of families in the most unfeeling manner. I' or this planter, and at his command. I took two children which he had previously purchased, from uA!u i i.v ,i . r . i men- parents, ana tne motner s nean appeared as t broken, lor she said bhe should never see them again. After this he went on to Maryland, where I saw a man sold from his wife and children. When they went after him. he said he would ra ther die than to leave his family ; but they put him in chains, and took him away, leaving his family in loud and bitter wailings, without any to comfort or care for them. From the town of Sal isbury in Maryland, I was sent the next morning after this man was brought in, about fifteen miles, after a female slave, who had a child about three months ld: but her former mistress wanted the child, and my employer sold her the child for for ty dollars, and took it from her. When I went to take the child back to the mistress, and had pas sed about four miles from Salisbury, I met the husband of this woman, who was going to make an enort to fro to the south with his wile. We had gotten a pass from his master, to see if our planter would not buy him, that he might go with his wife ; but he would not give his master's price for him, so that he was obliged to go back with his child, while his wife, and its mother, was driven off to Alabama. Une nisfht, while 1 was in Maryland, 1 went to a meeting of the slaves; and while one of them was at prayer, one of the patroles came round, and hearing something which he did not like in the slave's prayer, he took him out of the meeting, and whipped him most unmercifully. I thought within myself, if this is slavery, God in mercy deliver me lrom it. When our planter had made out his complement of slaves, and was ready to start for the South, these negroes, big and little, were put into one drove, and driven off to the South, like a drove of swine. In the course of my tour, I had the opportunity of seeing the era elty of the planters in Delaware, in Maryland, Virginia, JNorth Carolina, South Carolina, Geor gia, Alabama, Tennessee and Kentucky. I tar ried in Alabama seven months. I had every op portunity during that time, to see the operations of working and whipping on their plantations. Ihe slaves had to go out to work in the morning at day break, males and females together, and work till it was dark. After they had done work at night, each one had to cook his own provision for the next day, and take it with him when he was cal led out in the morning. One peck of meal, and three and a half pounds of meat, was the allow ance for an individual for one week, and each might cook it at night as he liked it best. For a failure in doing the task allotted to the slave, and, indeed, for almost every offence, real or imagined, the whip is used ; and I will mention some of the different modes of whipping" which I have seen. Sometimes they will tie the slaves to a tree, makinsr their leet last, and bring their Hands round the tree as far as they can reach, and hav ing made them fast, they put on with a heavy cow- skin without mercy, the poor creatures begging, crying and promising, but all to no purpose. bometimes they select a large log, and tie their feet fast on one side, and draw them over the oth er side, then making them fast with their back and breach naked. They then sometimes use the whip, and sometimes the battle, laid on to their naked flesli without mercy. The battle or paddle, is made out of a half inch board, with thirty holes bored in it with a large gimblet or a small auger ; and every time they strike with this instrument of torture, which is generally used upon the back, it will make a blister lor each hole which comes lair- ly upon the flesh ; and the next stroke will break these blisters and raise new ones, and so on; and often, after this application, they will use the whip till they are cut in gashes from head to foot, and with salt and vinegar they would wash them off. And sometimes they will tie their hands together, and then with a rope draw them over a pole, while with one hand they hold the rope, and put on the whip with the other. After they have done their work at night, and have left the field or the cotton-house for their lodg ings, it is not unfrequent for the overseer, or some of his cronies, or both, to take some of the females and stop them by the way for their own accommo dation. Many men of my acquaintance at the South are in the habit of buying themselves a wife, or a house girl, as they call them ; and when they get tired of them, they will sell them and get another. And some will take the first one they can come at on the plantation and use them as a wife. It is not unfrequent for the slaves to run away ; and when they do, the hounds are put upon their track, and they are often taken, brought back, and whipped and battled in the most shocking manner. Sometimes they have chains and clogs fastened to them, to keep them from running away again. Some are almost torn in pieces by the hounds; while others are not much hurt by them. These things I have often seen with my own eyes, and I know them to be the truth, and nothing but the truth. J. C. Hodge. Union Anti-Slavery Society of Philadel phia. This Society was formed, about a year ago, for the express, purpose tf promoting a greater union among the members of the different church es and religious societies, in forwarding the Anti Slavery cause in their respective connections. 1 hey agree to keep up the monthly concert of prayer in each congregation, on the last Monday evening of each month, and the general society holds meetings once a quarter, The third Quar terly Report is before us, in the columns of the Pennsylvania Freeman, and details a series of wanton persecutions on the part of the pro-slavery ecclesiastical authorities, which affords conclusive evidence that such an organization is deeply feared by those who are committed in subserviency to the "institution." The auxiliary No. 1, connect ed with the 11th Presbyterian church, has been assailed publicly by the pastor in a sermon (!) in which he declared to the church, that if they elect ed abolitiqnists into the session he would not act with them. The president of thjs society was generally deemed the most suitable person for an office in the session. The auxiliary No. . connect' eu with tne west rresbyienan churcli, nns been sn more severely hunted ; their Dorcas Society h been broken up, the abolitionists have been turnec out (if the pabbath school, and o, vote passed exclude tne exciting topic ot Uolonizatio.q an Abolition from the church ;" in pursuance which, an active abolitionist has-been public suspended from the communion, and the abolition members denounced generally, as on " thcdowuhi road to nitidelity," ccc. Uur sympathies are strongly drawn out in behalfof these suffering breth ren, and we exhort them to the patient endurance which becomes their profession, and which w triumph in the end. Mass. Abolitionist .' " Free and Friendly." Among the iiitellectua enorts to wnicti Henry umy s great pro-siaveiy speech has given rise, our attention has been cal led to a pamphlet just published by Mahlon Day, of INew York, entitled, " lree and rriendly lie marks on a Speech lately delivered in the Senate of the United States, by Henry Clay." The wri ter's name is not given, but he declares himself member of the Society of Friends, and not a cit izen of this country ; from which, with the aid o internal evidence, rumor has assigned the author hip to a distinguished minister of that sect, from England, who has been making the tour of the Union, and who, though well known as a zealous abolitionist at home, has hitherto preserved a stu dious silence on the subject here. Had he placed his name upon the present pamphlet it would have gone tar to redeem his delinquency, lor he takes high ground with regard to the inherent criminal ity of slavery as ' opposed to the eternal rule of right.' He also expresses a natural surprise at the statement of Mr. Clay, that 1 negro slaves have been deliberately and solemnly recognized as the legitimate subjects of property by the tedera Government itself.' And well he maybe, for cer tainly the United States' Constitution gives no au thority for such an allegation. He thinks the firs object should be the abolition of slavery in the District of Columbia and in Florida, and the in ternal traffic. The whole is reasoned with much clearness, in a very temperate style, and where the author is known, will strengthen the convic tion we have expressed, that Henry Clay's speech will, in the end, do more to develope than to re press the energies of the spirit of abolition. Emancipator. 1) omcstic Inauguration of Washington. The Fiftieth Anniversary of the Inauguration of Wash ington, was celebrated by the New York Historical Socie ty, at N. Y. City, on Tuesday, the 30lh of April. The ven erable Ex President, John Q. Adams, having been invi ted by the Society, pronounced the Oration. We take the following synopsis from the N. Y. Commercial: The Society and its guests assembled at the City Hotel, where large numbers of citizens besides, pressed forward, eager to pay their-respects to the venerable and exalted stutesman who bad been so happily chosen as the orator of the day. At 12 o clock, the company at the hotel moved to the church in processsion. A temporary forum had been erected in front of the pulpit, for the accommodation of the orator, the officers of the Society, and th committee of ar rangements, &c. P. G. Stuyvesant, Esq., President of the Historical Society, took the chair. Among the guests on his right were Gen. Morgan Lewis, Mr. Justice Thomp son, of the Supreme Court of the United states, Gov. ren- nington, of New Jersey, and others. On the left of the chair were the venerable John Trumbull, Presidont Duer, of Columbia College, Judge Belts, of the United States Dis trict Court, Major General Scott, and others. 1 he exercises were commenced by a solemn and appro priate prayer, by the Kev. Dr. Knox, in which he happily enumerated the blessings that had followed the services and examples of the illustrious Washington. He closed by in voking happiness both here and hereafter, for the distin guished orator of the day. The following Ude, written for the occasion by Wm. G. Bryant, Esq., was then sung to the lofty music of Old Hun dred : Great were the hearts, and strong the minds, Of those who framed, in high debate, , The immortal league of love that binds Our fair broad empire, state with state. And ever hallowed be the hour, When, as the auspicious task was done, A nation's eift, the sword of power, Was given to Glory's unspoiled son. That noble race is gone; the suns Of fifty years have risen and set; The holy links those mighty ones Had forged and knit, are brighter yet. Wide as our own free race increase Wide shall it stretch the elastio chain, And bind, in everlasting peace, State after state, a mighty train. The ode having been printed and distributed generally through the church, the whole immense congregation joined to swell the loud anthem," producing a deep and solemn ettect, Then rose the venerable orator, full of years and full of honors, who, as was happily remarked hy Dr. Knox in his prayer, has passed his three score years and ten, but whose eye is not dim, nor his natural force abated. Were it in our power from recollection to make even an approach to justice, we would attempt an analysis of the masterly dis course which enchained the audience with almost breath less attention, for nearly two hours. It was indeed a noble effort of a noble mind, rich in classic lore, in its own recol lections, and its strong and original views and mighty con. ceptions. Outrages in Mobile, From one of our exchange papers, we extract the follow, ing : " There must be a fearful state of disorder in Mobile, if we are allowed to judge fiom the continued wilful sacrifice of human life, recorded in the papers. Our late slips give accounts of three successive murders or attempts in as many days, which evidence a callousness to the laws almost if not quite unparalleled in civilized society. The scenes of vio lence seem to have commenced on the day of the municipal election, on the evening of which, one of a party who were celebrating the triumph was shot with a pistol ball through the side, and so wounded a) to cause his death on the follow ing morning. On the succeeding day, Mr. John Wise, an old and respectable inhabitant of the place, was shot hy a Capt. Taylor, whp wag in the employ of Mr. W. as com mander of a schooner. Ihe ball entered the eye, and stri king a bono took a slanting direction outward, without killing him, but fears were entertained that ho could not recover, The third and last was on the 27th, when anoth er individual was shot and instantly killed. The Chroni cle, in remarking upon these frequent and appalling out rages, comes to the ponclusion that the time has arrived when it has become necessary to assume extra legal pow ers, and recommends, that the lovers of order! associate un der bond and oath,' forming a bond of moral and physical strength and character, sufficient to bear down all opposi tion, and enforce perfect obedience to the laws, that they go armed to the teeth, with a determination to shoot down on the spot whoever uses the pistols or knife.

Bacheldex of Plainfield, to Miss Lvcre tia L. Mack of Seneca Falls, N. Y. DEATHS, In Middlesex, on the 24th ult., Mr. Darius Harring- ton, aged 66, one of the first settlers of the town. Print ers in N. York, Ohio and Maine are requested, &c. At Miss Green's Seminary, in Burlington, May 1st, Miss Elizabeth Collamer, daughter of the Hon. Jacob Cullamer, of Woodstock, aged 17 years. The following tribute to the memory of the deceased, is from the Burlington Free Press : Some writer has beautifully remarked " A peculiar sanctity is 6aid to linger about tne memory ol those who descend in early life, or the flush of years to the grave; who fall asleep upon the kind lap of earth, before the cares or calamities of the world have weighed down the heart, or clouded the spirit; before the ethereal freshness of being, as been sullied by change or weakened by misfortuno. uch sanctity such a cheerful and tranquil light, we are sured, belonged to the earthly career of the subject of this uarariranh. If the love of kindred, the prayers ol friends, and the affectionate solicitude of those whose sorrows alone make a pane in the last triumphant moment could have availed, the name of Elizabeth Collamer would not now be umbered with the departed. In her spirit there was a combination of the pure and frank simplicity of childhood, with the accomplishments of cultivated womanhood, and that deeper intuition which is seldom the lot of any but matured years. In manner, gracious without familiarity, and confiding without imprudence, she won all friendships ithout awakening envy, preserved them only to increase their strength. Reared in tenderness, she yet, appreciated the blessings of life with a calm gratitude, which used, out not abused them; and while she valued sublunary being, its chiefest merit was, in her esteem, that it afforded an op portunity for acts of daily goodness, and thanks to the Su preme. A course thus blameloss and pure, had in death its crowning reward, .throughout a sickness wnicn the best medical skill was sought for in vain to avert, it was marked with perpetual thanks all was resignation, all was peace. And when the last hour arrived, when the dews of death bathed the pale brow and fading eyes, a conquering soul looked with guileless fortitude to the lust enemy; and the final surrender of the meek and quiet spirit to its God, was "even as a sleep, and pleasant as a dream," Life vanished with a smile; and with an e,xpiratiqn soft as an angel's whisper, and a glance beaming with immortal hope, habitant of earth was borne to heaven. 1 Then, who can tell how wide and bright The realm of glory opened round; How thought and feeling flowed like light, Through ranks of being without bound."
